Until you get the court order signed by the judge, you aren’t officially divorced and cannot remarry. The rules which are different in every state include how long you have to reside in the state prior to you being able to file for divorce, how long you have to wait prior to your divorce being completed after you file, and how the state will treat alimony and child support.

If you are concerned about this and are not certain what is best for the family, consider talking to a family therapist or child psychologist who is able to assist you in figuring it out.
